Conclusion: Research in Motion have again evolved the BlackBerry. There's no denying that this is a better BlackBerry than yesterday's, even with the dreadful construction quality. I'm going to assume that the next BlackBerry will rectify that backward step. I am fearful for research in motion and their future though, I don't think that they are evolving fast enough; I think this is a good product but it is a year old already.
Conclusion: Aside from a wobbly keypad and a few other minor inconveniences like having to copy your contacts over from your SIM card, this is a flawless device. Business and personal users will enjoy the new and improved performance that comes with the Blackberry 8700g. The EGDE connectivity, included IM client, improved web browser, and new buttons make this device a smash hit.
Excerpt: The BlackBerry 8700g is the latest of RIM's wireless email devices, adding a higher resolution screen and a new, slightly smaller keyboard layout. The device is also more responsive than earlier BlackBerry devices, but upgraders will find the new keyboard cramped and less easy to use. Available now from T-Mobile, the 8700g is the first BlackBerry with an Intel XScale chip.
Excerpt: It's hard to imagine life before the BlackBerry. Well, maybe that's exaggerating. But it's certainly true that properly pocket-sized devices that fulfil the vast bulk of our communication and contacts needs have quickly become something that mobile business users depend upon.
